Sketch Colour Design Repeat

Sketch Colour Design Repeat….not always in that order but in a basic way that sums up my process.

SKETCH

COLOUR and DESIGN

These are usually combined…often I have a couple of colours in mind and add or adapt depending on the brief.  Design could also be composition, this is my favourite part connecting all the piece and almost always this work is fleshed out in Illustrator and Photoshop.

Tip: if drawing animals look for flowers and leaves from their natural habitat it can help bring the design together.

and hopefully something good comes at the end…

Bees in the meadow

Over the past few weeks, whilst the weather was still fine, I sat watching the bees buzzing around catching the last of the nectar.  Our garden is in a dip so whilst we take a few weeks longer to warm up in spring the flip side of this is our autumns feel a few weeks longer and we still had lots of flowers and autumnal colour.  Shame it doesn’t last just a bit longer.

Hola llama

I wish I had a pet Llama,
I’d walk him through the mountains everyday,
Picking flowers and saying Hola to everyone we meet.
Only stopping to drink at the water fountain and play.

 

Collection inspired by our local llamas who always nod hello when we pass by. The friendly threesome happily pose for a few sketches.

A helping hand.

On 23, Sep 2015 | No Comments | In Working from home | By patternandco

We all need a bit of help every now and again and lucky for me our 2 year old is always on hand to help with a bit of painting.

Lots of colours are her favourite, rainbows, hand printing (which includes teddy with painted paws) and circles.

The wee one was not left out though she just preferred to play with a couple of balls…life is so much more interesting when you take time to paint hands, play ball, sing songs and hangout with your sister!
